    Welp,

    I think It happened.....Driving home from Yankee Stadium on sunday....Halfway between CT/NY....I was driving with "spirit"......when all of a sudden i see a white trail of smoke coming out of my exhaust after i had "gunned" iti was like WTF.....so i slowed down a bit and lightly pushed down on the gas ...going about 65....then i did it harder got up to about 90 and saw the smoke again.....then i let off.....wierd thing is....i did it a third time and no smoke....but that was like 30 minutes later....I'm pretty sure it's a blown head gasket...My buddy who is fixing my celica(which is done today) is gonna do some tests to give me some confirmation.

    I hate cars....................................................................................
